Nah don't worry about it I'm not insulted.
I am picking out specific parts. I just wasn't trying to make a thread out which specific parts are better then others and didn't want to waste anyone's time by posting 7 links of different parts. I'm only making sure I didn't miss anything crucial to a PC, because as I said, I've never had the pleasure of building my own before and I didn't want to miss anything crucial. Like it would probably be a good idea not to forget a heatsink for the CPU
But yeah, most of the teachers at this school are kind of a joke sadly.
for all I know, maybe you want to put in Celeron and DDR1 with IDE drives for the gaming computer, integrated graphics with 32mb memory for architecture design
EDIT: Oh by the way, why the fuck is it so hard to find internal wireless cards on Newegg? Or am I just retarded?
